FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Aug. 17, 2022 -- Loudspeaker Studios announced today that its original podcast series The Weird has been chosen as an Official Selection in the 2022 New Jersey Web Fest. The program has also been nominated for three festival awards, including: Outstanding Actual Play Podcast (Non D&D), Best Ensemble Cast, and Best Editing.

Selected from hundreds of submissions from around the world, The Weird is a groundbreaking combination of an Actual Play storytelling podcast series and original tabletop role-playing game created and written by Charles Joseph Kelly, who also stars in the series along with Megan Danger (Oh No! Lit Class), Scottye Moore (Fun Fiction), and Nancy Dreckman (Loudspeaker’s The Vibe). The story follows Agents Ash Delaney (Danger) and Hal Bishop (Moore) as they investigate spooky goings-on for a fictional federal agency. The Weird is an immersive audio fiction experience, emphasizing character-building, storytelling, and generally spooky nonsense. Listeners can experience The Weird as it happens when new episodes air live every other Tuesday night at 9 PM Eastern/6 PM Pacific on or through the Loudspeaker mobile app, TuneIn, smart speakers, and elsewhere. Podcasts are released on Wednesdays. The Weird is an original production of Loudspeaker Studios.

Charles Joseph Kelly, creator and executive producer, said: “The Weird is a labor of love for all of us and we are thrilled to have been selected among such fierce and prestigious competition. We can’t wait to share in the excitement with other incredible creators.”

Winners will be announced on Sunday, September 25, 2022 and honored at the New Jersey Web Fest Awards Gala in Bloomfield, NJ. Learn more at
